It’s a conundrum that has faced holiday makers for years. The decision on whether to go on holiday is big enough, never mind deciding where you want to go. For your holiday, you deserve a rest – a break from the hustle and bustle from daily life. Here are some reasons as to why your holiday should be in the countryside.
See what you’ve never seen before
At home, you are more than likely to have all the common sights of modern living on your doorstep. The office buildings, the billboards next to the roads; in a city, it’s no different, and that sense of natural exploration is lost among the offices. For that feeling of seeing something new, trade the man-made skyscrapers for the natural ones. Mid-Wales has some of the most naturally beautiful landscapes the UK has to offer. See it all while you can, it would be a shame to miss out.
Support local businesses
When venturing out to the bright lights of the city, it’s very easy to fall into the trap of buying from all the big brands that you’ve become so accustomed to at home. From the hotel you book, to the restaurants you dine at. It’s all what you would find at home. Of course, there are independent businesses in cities, but you better be prepared to pay for it! Out in the countryside, anywhere in the UK, you can eat and stay at places that you wouldn’t think of visiting. Also, your purchases matter – they’re worth more than numbers on a statement.
Get away from it all
There is one common trait that all cities have: they’re busy. There is never a dull moment, and it becomes a real struggle to find peace and quiet. If you’re looking for a relaxing break from work and daily life, you’ll find it easier to discover what you want further away from home. Whether it’s by the coast or in between mountains, you’re more likely to find tranquillity either way.
Well, you might have to…being out in the countryside means less reception on your phone. Whereas it’s easy to be put off by the lack of connection to the outside world, it provides a unique opportunity to give your distance from your daily life. Save it for when you get back to the caravan!
More for your money
The value of how far your money goes is sky high at the moment. Now more than ever, people are looking to get the most out of what they’re paying for. With all that’s on offer in the country, we know which option we’d pick! The cost of living has always been higher in cities and during these testing times, it’s going to be higher than ever.
